    Guitar chords

    Hey guys,

    Is there a resource anywhere that shows the actual notes of guitar voicings in notation?

    I am using the JABB guitar for comping and want to use actual guitar voicings instead of piano voicings which may well be impossible on guitar - I have books with guitar chord shape libraries and obviously can work through these to create my own library, but would prefer not to reinvent the wheel if this resource already exists.

    Thanks...
    Richard N.

    This is not a direct solution for you but it's something you might want to check into.

    Band in a Box, from PG Music, is a commercial program that you might have heard about. If you type in a chord progression, jazz fake book style, it will arrange a rhythm guitar part for you that uses authentic guitar chord voicings and inversions that a real guitarist would play. It will display these chords in standard music notation, and of course generate MIDI data that you can export and bring into your notation or sequencing program. It's really quite good at this, among its many other "auto arranger" functions. I think this could save you quite a bit of time and study.

    I just realized that this post should be in the new Club JABB forum, not here. Moderators?

    Thanks for the input so far.

    Wheat - I can see why you suggest that this is a Club JABB thread, however I posted it here because the question is not really specific to JABB. It is a general question on Guitar voicings.
